Last week I reviewed one of the new Mega Construx building sets that come packaged in a case shaped like Skeletor's head and today I'm checking out the next one: Trap Jaw & Laser Cannon! This is the first time we've received Trap Jaw in the Masters of the Universe Mega Construx line although this isn't his standard look. Instead, Mega Construx released him in his green skinned look from his appearance in the vintage minicomics. He comes packaged along with an improved version of the turret from Castle Grayskull, which is kind of cool. You could really place it anywhere. I'm liking these little sets, so let's jump in and check this one out after the break...
* Trap Jaw is easily one of the best minifigures in the Mega Construx line and I'm very excited for the standard Trap Jaw whenever he is released. The minicomic green version isn't my favorite Trap Jaw but, gosh, he does look nice. The colors are spot on and the little things like the rubbery belt with little slits for weapons and the armored shoulder harness are very well executed.
* The headsculpt is excellent too, especially in this smaller scale. He's got the little loop on top for allowing him to glide down a string and an actual hinged mouth. Yup! It really works!
* Trap Jaw's arm doesn't have an elbow joint but it does have a great sculpt and moves at the shoulder and the wrist. It's very cool! He really does feel like a scaled down version of the Masters of the Universe Classics figure!
* Trappy comes with four different weapons for his arm. You've got his standard hook, the laser cannon, the claw, and the fly swatter from the Filmation cartoon series. They swap nicely and stay on securely!
* Like the rest of the figures in this line Trap Jaw is well articulated and
ready for battle. These really are some of the nicest minifigures out
there and they're incredibly fun. If you haven't picked up one yet and
you're either a MOTU fan or a minifigure fan, you really need to. They're exceptional.
